Please. If you give me a day or two I'll do a short on pasta, but I'm not doing 5 lines.

There's nothing wrong with 5 lines? Give it a go. It's really challenging trying to write something short and effective.

Grr...fine...

The wind picked up as they neared the end of the stairs, and as her shoes crunched onto the icy roof it whipped the snow against their faces.
He set the pot down next to the lip, and squatted next to it.
"Why here?"
"Here's good." She passed him the spoon, and watched as the mixture was dug into.
The snow whirled down, past them and over the edge.

Look, Sarah is an ARTIST with words. She can turn a simple 5 line piece about her hate for pasta into something beautiful. You....no. I can see why you didn't want to do it.

 ;D

but...really...that wasn't really about pasta, was it?

I agree, when you ask "what was sarah's story about?", people will answer "oh, that's an easy one, it was about pasta!"
when you ask people "what was Alyss' story about?" they will say "I'm not sure. Snow? Spoons... maybe?"

also:
The wind picked up as we neared the end of the stairs, and as her shoes crunched onto the icy roof it whipped the snow against their faces.

it doesn't make any sense; it's nonsense!

anyway, I'm sorry, but you said you preferred "vicious truth", so I'm giving it to you.
